Chinese Chicken Cabbage Salad

June 1, 2010

This is one of our favorite recipes for summer.  Most of the girls don’t like cabbage, but this tastes nothing like cabbage.  If you anticipate leftovers, serve the topping separately and store it in the pantry.  If you mix the topping with the salad and refrigerate, the crunchy topping becomes soggy.
